I have been a vegetarian for over 20 years. Most nights I end up cooking 2 separate meals. One with meat for John and a veggie meal for me. When Beyond Meat reached out and asked if I wanted to surprise my family with a recipe made with their protein-based vegetarian meat I jumped at the chance. I am always on the lookout for a new option to cook with as a vegetarian. Getting enough protein in my diet is a daily focus.
Crock Pot Vegetarian Meatball Soup Recipe
I was really impressed to learn that Beyond Meat is using protein from plants to create delicious products ranging from chicken strips & tenders to meatballs to beef crumbles.
I decided to make this Crock Pot Vegetarian Meatball Soup Recipe with Beyond Meat. I have to say it was so nice being able to make a crockpot soup recipe that I can enjoy. A lot of the times I make crockpot soups that John raves about, but I never get the chance to try them. Beyond Meat is opening up a ton of recipes that I can't wait to make in the future!
It was also a ton of fun not telling John he was eating a vegetarian soup. He had no idea the meatballs were veggies. It was fantastic!
When I served John the soup I sat down with a bowl for myself. I wish I would have grabbed a photo of John's face when I took a bite of the meatballs. He was so shocked. It was great being able to tell him that they were veggie and I could enjoy them.

Plant protein consumption is at a tipping point with elite athletes as early adopters. These athletes intuitively understand the benefits of plant-based proteins, and so they've partnered with Beyond Meat.
What does the Future of Protein look like? The meat case will become the protein case. Plant protein will appear on the menus of the largest restaurant chains and in schools nationwide.

This sounds amazing. Most nights, we don't have any meat, but I absolutely love meatballs. I'm so excited to hear that there is a meat-free meatball alternative. I'm going to pick these up next time I'm at the store and make this for my husband for dinner!
My husband would absolutely LOVE this recipe! He's a huge fan of hearty soups and looks for any excuse he can to add meatballs to a meal! I will certainly have to make this for him in the near future - thank you for sharing! 🙂
Meat or not, this soup looks absolutely delicious. I'm not vegetarian, but I do incorporate a lot of vegetarian recipes in to our diet. This is definitely one I'll have to put in the rotation and see if the fam even notices the difference. During the winter month I know this soup will be welcomed as it's a great comfort food!
Oh my gosh that looks amazing! I have wanted to try that "meat" but cannot find it in any stores around here. I am going to have to pin this for later!
I love this and it's a sure fire way to bring something new in our home because I am tired of the same ole same ole soup. I have been dying for something different.
That soup looks so good. Just looking at it I never would have guessed the meatballs were veggie! YUM!
I love Beyond Beef products and find them to be so delish! Your recipe looks awesome! I can't believe you prepared all that using a crock pot! How cool! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Minestrone is my favourite soup and adding meatballs to it just takes it to a whole new level. I'll totally try getting the veggie meatballs.
I think this would surprise my family too. I just want all of those meatballs though! I'm horrible at homemade meatballs so I need some help for sure

Crockpots meals are the best. They save me so much time with my busy schedule. I have tried some of the beyond meat products to make vegetarian recipes. As a vegetarian I have liked them. This meatball soup looks great.
